ScrapbookSteals Blog Hop!!



Hey there!! If you are here from Teresa's blog, then you are in the right place!! If you just stumbled upon this hop, make sure you head back to the beginning - ScrapbookSteals BLOG - to make sure you don't miss any of the awesome projects!!

The products we got to play with - American Crafts DIY Thickers - for this hop are soooo much fun!! The possibilities are endless!! I actually wanted to make a few more projects for this hop, but ran outta time!! I had so many ideas!!

My first project is a layout using family pics from this fall when our baby, Taylah, was born...


Just in case someone out there has never seen, or heard of, DIY Thickers before... They are adhesive on both sides so you can totally customize them!! I used Martha Stewart glitter on the letters in this layout, but you can use flock, coarse glitter, flowersoft... the list goes on! :) 


Here is a little tip for using the letters.... They come in a long sheet, and I like to lay out my projects to see how everything will fit, so I cut each letter out so that I could easily figure out the best spot for them on my layout. Once I knew where they should go, I just peeled the backs off and stuck them to the paper. 


Here is what I used to make my layout...
- American Crafts DIY Thickers
- Recollections Fabulous Girl stack
- My Creative Time We Are Family stamp set and doily and button dies
- Pink By Design Bracketful stamp set

I also made a quick card...


These Thickers are material chipboard letters and sooo fun!! I sprayed them with dark blue Ditto glimmer spray and they turned out really neat! They look like blue jean letters. I forgot to take a pic, but the inside of the card reads,"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad". 

For this card I used the following supplies...
- American Crafts DIY Thickers
- Ditto Glimmer spray
- file from the Silhouette store
- Pink By Design Our Fathers stamp set
